The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has called on the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu to show evidence that he (Atiku) is from Cameroon.
Concise News had reported that Kanu during a broadcast on Saturday, alleged that Atiku, a former Vice-president, is from Cameroon and not a Nigerian.
“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon,” Kanu said.
However, Atiku in a statement by his media aide Ibe Paul challenged Kanu to show the proof that his principal is from the Central African nation.
“You media should ask him to supply the proof. It is not the man that is being accused that you will ask,” the statement noted.
“It is the person who made the allegations that you will ask to bring his proof of where he (Atiku) is from or where he is not from.”
Concise News understands that up till 59 years ago, Atiku’s area of Adamawa was in Cameroon.
Gada was the headquarters of British Cameroon and included Jada, Atiku’s birthplace.
However, after a plebiscite, it decided to stay with Nigeria and became part of the Sardauna Province with the other part, joining Cameroon.
“By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people,” he added.
“To vote in the zoo means to endorse 1999 fraudulent constitution. By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people.”
According to him, “Those pressuring me to call off the election boycott know what to do, sign that document I gave to you and I will call off the election boycott, you know what the document contains.”
